Crown Zenith Set Preview - Pokemon TCG

November 7, 2023

Crown Zenith is a special Pokemon TCG set from the Sword and Shields series to be released in 2023. It will be the last set to be released for the Sword and Shield series, marking the end of the eighth generation of Pokemon.

After the release of Pokemon TCG Silver Tempest, Crown Zenith is the latest Pokemon TCG set to get fans excited and will be released on January 20th, 2023.

Crown Zenith is out now! Check out the Crown Zenith Card List here!

Crown Zenith will include 3 brand new Radiant Rare Pokemon Cards, 17 V Pokemon (SEVENTEEN!!!) and a gigantic 80 Galarian Gallery subset. The Galarian Gallery is likely to be similar to the Trainer Gallery subsets we've seen in Silver Tempest, Lost Origin and Astral Radiance.

Whilst we don't have an official card set list for Crown Zenith, there are expected to be at least 160 new cards for Pokemon TCG fans to collect.

With Crown Zenith being a "special" set, you won't be able to buy Booster Boxes or individual Booster Packs outright. Instead, you'll have to purchase one of a number of different Crown Zenith products, including Elite Trainer Boxes and Mini-Tins that will include Booster Packs inside them.

The set is being released as VSTAR Universe in Japan.
